We have received this material and it has been accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have also scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

Thank you again, Garrett.

You can have any and all Amanitas sect. Vaginatae I find, sorry the last one took so long to get to you!

I would be very interested seeing some of your dried material
